RADIOACTIVITY: Self-titled: 7”EP

May 30, 2014

When I was a kid growing up in the ‘70s, I loved action movies and television because they made me feel, by proxy, superhuman by just watching them. They filled me with a feeling of invincibility and raw, ragged potential; overwhelming odds overcome, opponents bested, scars left. Radioactivity’s songs make me feel that way as a stupid adult addicted to vinyl records. There’s just so much instantaneously emanating from these songs. Not only is there blasting punk jet-engine thrust, but x-ray subatomic particles colliding and syringes injecting. Head almost explodes from sheer joy. DNA gets scrambled. The entire room glows with a weird, catchy, green throbbing power coming off a mere circling black disc. Just so it’s on record—projects that involve Jeff Burke and/or Mark Ryan—Marked Men, Mind Spiders, Potential Johns—just buy them. It’s a quality of life issue.
